Since I did post about the great deal on Sam's Club, I did buy one myself. It's actually my first Kershaw. I'm usually a Spyderco guy, but this "Speedsafe" it pretty cool. It just takes a light flick to open that blade. Of course, it takes a bit more than normal pressure to close it, but that's not the point. OK, I probably don't really need that extra speed, but it is nice to have. I've also never had a tanto blade as I'm really not a knife fighting kind of guy. We'll see how that works in everyday use. So far, I'm happy.

I just made a Chromebook. Kind of... I just downloaded and installed the free version of Neverware Cloudready on an old Gateway NV53A laptop. I had KaOS Linux on it, which is pretty small and fast to begin with. We use this pretty much as a backup computer for my Linux desktop and my wife's Chromebook. The beauty is that it now looks and works just like her Chromebook and that's important for a non-expert like her. As a backup, I just need to get to my web stuff and to be able to download my Linux distro if my desktop needs to be rebuilt. This work just fine. Even though it isn't an approved computer, everything seems to be working just perfectly and it's noticeably faster than the Chromebook. I'm very happy with it.

Some junk mail came with a magnetic heart shape for the fridge. Since I didn't care about what they were advertising, I painted it in a semi-abstract way. Sorry, that it's only semi-abstract.

"Netrunner" Acrylic on canvas board 8x16". My main computer has the Linux distro Netrunner Rolling on it. I have abstracted the logo for it to make some art. It seems kind of odd to take something so engineered and structured as an operating system and turn it into an organic abstract physical painting. Yeah, I have turned it into my background, but it is a twist on the technical - making it into something more organic and imprecise. Sorry, it looks abstract here, but compared to the actual logo it's only semi-abstract.

I don't usually do this, but I just bought a Kershaw Tanto Blur at Sam's Club for a really great price. It is the last day for the sale, but if you ever wanted one this may be time:

Self advice that I'm taking right now.

As an abstract painter I have joined and subscribed to many different online forums and groups to see a lot of other people's abstract paintings. The idea was to get ideas and inspiration for my own art. What I've recently realized is that it was doing the opposite. A lot of it bothered me. (I don't like "splash and scribble" abstract art.) I did learn that no one does abstract art like I do. Based on that, what I was looking at wasn't inspiring me to do better in my work. It was making me visualize in ways that are outside of my way of thinking. I understand that could be useful for some people. For me it was scattered and random in ways that stunted my own creativity.

Recently I unjoined, unfollowed, and unsubscribed to all those. It seems to be really helping my personal vision and creativity. I free again! I can't say I won't look at other art, but it may be towards other forms that don't conflict with my abstract visions.

Just some self advice that others may or may not find interesting.

I painted a physical version of the Plasma 5.5 background. It's a different feel. Acrylic on canvas board 8x16". Included are the full size, 1920x1200, and 1920x1000. Use for any non-commercial purpose you like, but don't try to take credit.

Lovely Bicycle!: Roses are Red ...and Welded in Steel
lovelybike.blogspot.com

While I enjoy receiving flowers on special occasions, it's always a little sad when they wilt. So for our anniversary a couple of weeks ago,

One of the best caves I've been in. I've been in a lot of the famous big, National Park, caves and a number of other caves. This cave really does have a bunch of formations that I've never seen anywhere else. If you love caves, you really need to see this cave.
